Ok, so the German-born J. Cole's hometown basketball team, the Frankfurt Skyliners, doesn't have an NBA D-League affiliate. Yet. But if the veteran of the 2012 All-Star Celebrity Game wants to fill in for fellow German Dirk Nowitzki's injury-wracked Mavs, he could start with their affiliate in Frisco.
Though if it were 2006, he could've just stayed in the place where he grew up -- Fayetteville, N.C. -- and suited up for the Patriots, former home of The Bird Man. The player and the logo.
For Common (pictured at right), the son of former ABA player Lonnie Lynn and co-star of the velour-clad Queen Latifah in 'Just Wright', if he wanted to break back in with the Chicago Bulls -- for whom he was a ballboy as a kid -- he could break in with the Bulls' affiliate, the Iowa Energy.
